This seminar presents a discussion on the latest trends regarding natural cosmetics and formulating for mildness. Cosmetics brands and formulators are under pressure to innovate, add value and differentiate their products in a saturated personal care market.

The demand for natural products, along with growing consumer awareness of synthetic chemicals in cosmetics and toiletries, continues to drive growth in the global natural personal care industry.

As a result, manufacturers are turning to natural alternatives to synthetic ingredients; such as Liquid Soap, which enables formulators to replace synthetic chemicals and create a variety of naturally-derived, sustainable products to create ‘green’ rinse-off products consumers will be confident to use.
